Ahead of the FOUND Horror Series

Hatcha was there right at the start of dubstep.

Back when the sound didn't even have a name, when there were very few rules over what could and couldn't be played, Hatcha was part of the original Croydon crew, the producers, selectors and promoters who made it happen.

Still working right at the edge, Hatcha has watched the sound he helped develop become a global phenomenon, while his own career has taken him far beyond the basement clubs of his native London.

Set to return to the capital for the FOUND Horror Series, the bass titan is set to go back-to-back with N-Type for a special 2005 era set.

Ahead of this, Clash invited Hatcha to jot down some long lost dubstep rinseouts - here's what he picked out.

- - -

Benny Ill - 'Classic Delux'
Brings back memories This one was me intro for a while.

Plastician - 'Hard Graft'

The way Plastic combined the grime and dubstep on this track was something else, way ahead of its time.

- - -

Skream - 'The Bug'

Needs no explanation.

Benga - 'Opium'
Benga never disappoints and this one was a Percy in my sets - always went down a treat with the ravers.

Jakes - '3klane'

Now this little monster was defiantly involved in the birth of tear out circa in the dubstep genre, pure madness and everyone loved it.

- - -

Coki - 'The Mud'
Totally exclusive to myself so doubt many would have heard this but I love it.

- - -

Benny Ill & Hatcha - 'Highland Spring'

Legendary track of course.

Catch Hatcha at the Born & Bred Hallowe'en Party tonight (October 30th) - tickets.
